Manchester City host Leeds United in the Premier League today in the weekend’s early kick-off.

When the teams last clashed, Leeds’ record signing Rodrigo earned Marcelo Bielsa’s side a well-deserved 1-1 draw in an entertaining meeting.

Eleventh-placed Leeds will be up against it this afternoon, however, with league leaders Man City 14 points clear of second-placed rivals United, who have a game in hand, entering the final stretch of the season.
